Investigation Commenced Against Chief Rabbi of Kishineff


An official investigation has been started, by order of the Roumanian Government, against Chief Rabbi Zirelson of Kishineff. The reason for the investigation is the fact that Rabbi Zirelson issued a call to the Jewish parents of Bessarabia, urging them not to send their children to the Roumanian schools on Saturday.

This action against the Rabbi is part of a campaign started by the Roumanian Government recently to suppress the system of Jewish schools in Bessarabia.
